The Register. A fantastic online newspaper. It has the latest
geek technology news. It has the Bastard Operator from Hell. And the bit that I really love about it: they really, really, really don’t like Blunkett.
A couple of quotes from the latest ID card related article:
Somewhat imprudently, given his current beleaguered state, Blunkett had told Pollard how useless he thought practically everybody in the Government was, excepting himself. In this case the victim is Patricia (‘doesn’t think strategically’, says pot) Hewitt of the Department of Trade & Industry.
Indeed. Comming from the master of the knee-jerk reaction, that is rich.
[Blunkett’s second in-command’s]…perception of the problem appears not to be that these people are being exploited, but that they’re very difficult to bag up and ship out of the country. New Labour, New Moral Compass.
Blunkettwatch: Blunkett’s personal immigration issue took a small, largely unnoticed turn for the worse yesterday, with a claim that he produced a letter from the immigration service to his lover’s nanny in a meeting with Home Office officials. This, if true, would be significant first because it would establish that the letter was passed to Blunkett, and second because it would suggest that Blunkett had intervened not once, but twice.
Let’s be honest, it’s very difficult to dislike any publication that has an official Blunkett watch, isn’t it?
Why, oh why, oh why, doesn’t the bearded fucker just resign?
